Police have urged drivers to be careful after heavy rain hit Suffolk, causing travel disruption across the region.
The Norfolk & Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team tweeted this morning to say there have already been five weather related incidents this morning.
Officers said: "Drive to the conditions not the speed limit.
"Lots of standing water in places. Be careful out there people"
As a result of spray on the roads, slow moving traffic is to be expected across the county and roads could be flooded due to heavy downpours.
Travellers should also be warned that bus and train services could be impacted with journey times taking longer.
Suffolk Highways also warned drivers not drive through flood water.
